Everybody's favorite design genius has been invited to the white house, to have dinner with president Obama ( big honor) even for Johnny. Of course David Cameron the prime minister of the UK, will be there plus a few others, but who cares.

Full story Here

Of course this had lead my onto a side topic ( what's new) but if you were having a swish dinner party, who would be top on your list.. Living or dead ?

Depends how many i could have to dinner, but this would be my top 10 list - the first 4 would be the ones i'd really wanna have there

Steve Jobs, John Lasseter, Jamie Oliver, George Lucas, Will Smith, Hulk Hogan, Tony Hawk, Michael Jordan, Sly Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger


and there are a few authors i'd love to have a yarn too, and even Jony Ives as i love design

I will have to go for John Lennon, I met him in New York, a month before he was murdered, walking over a set of traffic lights, we both pressed the walk button at the same time, when i noticed who it was, he simply put his finger to his mouth and said ( shh) is a very soft voice.

Steve Jobs, well I met the great man I think in 1984, when i was #1 salesman of apple gear 3 months in a row, at a Hardley Normal store, and steve and G harvey, fronted up at about 6.10pm spoke to me for about 3 minutes, thanked me, and gave me a (Mac Ci), well he asked GH, to give me one, for my great efforts , his parting words were " if you are that good sales man why don't you make money for yourself not somebody else) so i left 3 months later and the rest is history.

Anthony Robbins, read all his books, been to two of his Melbourne shows, Brian you can work out how that worked out for me :P

So back to my original Comment, John Lennon all the way, or at least one of the other Beatles.

Grace Kelly for me, after her may be some Raquel Welsh entertainment, also of interest would be Ernest Shackleton, and Robert Falcon Scott, then Ken, with his new iPad.....:rolleyes:

Yeah, but whilst your waiting for him to bash away at the keyboard, what about some kind of "feminine" equality / entertainment / to keep the evening more interesting. Now Grace is one mighty pretty lady, who had some smarts about herself, look at the fashion statement, have a look at "The rear window" probably get it on the store.....????

Umm,,, that's Sir Johnny to you fella.

And I've just popped in to ask why, after ten posts in this thread, my name seems to have been accidentally omitted from all guest lists thus far?

Cheers,

P ;)

I think I' ll reply to you Ken, tho it apllies to all of you at the same time. You know what my favourite would be????? To have you all for lunch one day. After all you are all famous, great thinkers, good fun, intelligent and I am sure it would be quite unique. So what do you think?
